Edge Remembers The SmackDown Six Group In 2002


During an appearance on The Kurt Angle Show podcast, Edge recalled being part of the SmackDown Six. 

It consisted of Edge, Rey Mysterio, Kurt Angle, Chris Benoit, and Eddie and Chavo Guerrero. 

“When we started that idea of the SmackDown Tag Titles, I knew with those six, with those six talents — and I’m sure Paul thought this as well, ‘I can mix and match every week.’ No matter what mix or match it is, they’re gonna crush it. Whether it’s Eddie and Edge one week, and Benoit and Rey, or [Kurt Angle] and Chavo, and then flip them the next week, and then flip them again. I mean, there are so many scenarios, you can go with that to me that, again, so much fun.

“I think back to No Mercy [2002] and that tag match we had for the inaugural tournament, and it was [Kurt] and Chris against me and Rey, and it was just to be in there with three other guys like that and just performing at that level, you know, you can’t really explain it. It’s hard to put into words when stuff like that is just bam, bam, bam, and it’s exactly how you envisioned it and then some. There’s a great sense of relief, but also, because you, damn, we just crushed that and that was the feeling every night when we’re going through that whole series, it was just like you just knew going in. So you walk in with a sense of confidence that goes so far in making sure that the match will be good because if you walk in with that kind of confidence, it’s pretty tough not to have a match like that.”
